Royal blunder: Meghan Markle forgets to UNWRAP bag on Ireland tour

Royal blunder: Meghan Markle forgets to UNWRAP bag on Ireland tour

Up next, Harry and Meghan are jetting off to Dublin, Ireland, for an official two-day visit to the country.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, July 2018.

The Duchess of Sussex promised to revisit Ireland's oldest library after she was told of plans to include the first female bust in its iconic Long Room.

Over on the accessories front, Meghan traded in her protocol-breaking £475 Strathberry midi tote for a £1,390 satin Givenchy clutch (yes, eagle-eyed fans will recognise the number from her Royal Ascot debut).

But while all eyes were on the outfits of her grandsons' wives, Duchess Kate and Duchess Meghan, HELLO! noticed something unusual about the Monarch's footwear.

The former Suits actress went against royal protocol by wearing black for the occasion, a colour the Queen and Kate Middleton usually only wear for sombre affairs.

The Queen has praised the Royal Air Force for its "tenacity, skill and gallantry" as she was joined by senior members of the royal family at the centrepiece of centenary events.

But it was the designer behind Meghan's sleeveless, fitted look that stole the show.

Earlier today, the Duchess of Sussex and Duchess of Cambridge attended a special service at Westminster Abbey to mark 100 years of the Royal Air Force.

For 100 years the RAF has defended the skies of Britain, preventing conflicts, delivering aid and combating cyber threats while working in partnership with other services.

It's a busy week for the new royal couple with Prince Louis' christening taking place just yesterday, and today's celebrations followed swiftly by a Buckingham Palace reception.

The RAF, which is the first-ever independent air force, split from the British Army and Royal Navy in April 1918.

Prince William and Prince Harry were decked out in their military finest.

The couple will also attend a garden party at the British ambassador's residence, and attend official meetings with the Irish president, Michael Higgins, and Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.
